Here we are.

Our first update. How exciting. We are Clipsters, and this our blog. We’ll be posting news, thoughts, recommendations and doggy health and wellbeing tips here. Follow us on Facebook to see when new updates are posted.

For our first update, I thought I’d say a bit about Clipsters.

About a year ago, I decided it was time for a change. I left my safe job in education to start my own business and have a complete change of lifestyle. I love dogs, but my partner (idiot) is allergic to dog hair. What to do? We decided to open a professional dog grooming business. I can work with dogs and Simon can keep his breathing regulated. Following a  training course at GroomArts which saw me qualify as a City and Guilds Level 3 dog groomer we saved and planned and bought ourselves a top-notch groom room and professional grooming equipment to go inside.

Our purpose-built grooming room, The Clip Joint, was delivered from Wet Pets by Nathan at Acta Crane Services.

A slightly scary moment but we got there.

After arranging the equipment and setting the water temperature we were ready to go.

We welcomed our first customers: Joel and his lovely rescue dog, Hope. Here she is before and after her Clipster grooming…

She was a little nervous, but we took our time and she was brilliant. And Joel left us some very nice feedback.

We’re excited about Clipsters and we look forward to welcoming all types and sizes of dogs for a washes, grooms and lots of belly rubs.

(We can even pick-up and drop-off in the Waltham Forest area for a small charge.)
